In our pre-season selections for League One we tipped 7/2 Millwall to be promoted and as the season moves into the finishing straight we still like the look of the Lions to go up.
A run to the quarter-finals of the FA Cup, which ended with Sunday’s defeat at Spurs, hasn’t distracted Neil Harris’ side.
They have put together a 14-game unbeaten league run to move up to sixth, 4 points inside the play-off places and 6 points behind Fleetwood in second – with a game in hand.
Don’t forget that the Lions beat 3 Premier League sides in Bournemouth, Watford & Leicester during that FA Cup run.
A poor defensive record let them down in the first half of the season – but they have been rock solid in recent weeks conceding just one goal in their last 8 league games.
That statistic is all the more remarkable when you consider they shipped 40 in their first 27 matches. Paddy Power are offering 10/3 that they will be promoted, which is out of line with the rest of the industry – the next best price is 5/2 with others at 9/4.
